Early Life & Education

A native of Oakland, California, Andrews was born on January 27, 1995 and attended the University of Portland, where she earned a bachelor of arts degree and graduated with honors in 2017.

Career

Before joining ESPN in October 2018, Andrews worked for one year as a reporter for the Chicago Tribune.

After the Milwaukee Bucks lost to the Toronto Raptors in the 2019 Eastern Conference Finals, Giannis Antetokounmpo walked out of the post-match press conference, upset about an article Andrews wrote saying he would leave Milwaukee if the Bucks did not make sufficient improvement to win the title before 2021, when he would be a free agent.
